Custom algorithms based on FBD

Example of algorithm implementation
in the ARIS CS

ARIS CS has built-in tools for programming the logic of operation. These tools can be used to create logical and computational diagrams of any complexity, including diagrams of interlocking, controls, logic processing of parameters, auxiliary calculations using a custom algorithm.

Custom algorithms based on FBD are loaded into the ARIS CS controller as an executable file, moreover, changing the logic of algorithm inside the controller is not possible, one can only define bindings of controller`s internal input and output signals. In addition to binding and processing of controller`s physical signals it is possible to  process quality attributes according to these signals.



Development environment for custom algorithms

The scope of delivery includes an advanced FBD application development environment — Soft Constructor software. The interface of a system user includes a windowed mode of operation, a graphic editor, libraries of standard algorithms. The availability of a debugger allows one to simulate an algorithm`s execution, browse statuses of variables, view progress of execution.
